    Jan van Eyck's Ghent Altarpiece is on any art historian's list of the 10 most important paintings ever made. Often referred to by the subject of its central panel, the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, it represents the fulcrum between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It is also the most frequently stolen artwork of all time.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory"
    "great story poor narration"

    Story
    Would you listen to Stealing the Mystic Lamb again? Why?

    yes. Because there are many details that go missing in a first time through.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stealing the Mystic Lamb?

    the unique place in history the Lamb occupies


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator has a Jack Webb type staccato style that lacks suitable inflection to appropriately reflect the drama in the story. He also has a very poor command of French, and other non-English, pronunciation. Granted there are lots of nationalities' names in the story.


    If you could give Stealing the Mystic Lamb a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Entertaining story of the life, so far, of an eternally valuable work
